Fine Paris Restaurants for weekend lunch and dinner
We will be spending two consecutive restaurants in Paris and need recommendations for four fine (michelin rated) lunches on weekends (important to note it is a weekend) and four dinners.
They do not all have to be michelin -- a good scene is fun too. We liked Avenue yet it was a bit busy ...
Thanks in advance! Off to Europe tomorrow, will check the board1
Is that a four day weekend or two two day weekends? It's probably the latter if you mean 'two consecutive weekeends" and not "restaurants".
Who's open on saturday, sunday, monday, has different responses. Also, do you really want to eat fine dining twice a day? I wouldn't recommend it if you're doing it for your enjoyment (some chefs do it when they're visiting Paris -- they're actually studying).
That said, Bristol, le Cinq, Grande Cascade, the Robuchon joints are open every day, every meal. L'Ambroisie is open sat for lunch (only three star to along with Bristol) and dinner. Savoy, Besson, Rostang are open on sat nights. Besson, Rostang are open monday night. L'Arpège is open monday for lunch (and dinner).
